Landing School job fair coming in April

Join representatives from between 15 and 20 boat shops and yards from around the country on April 13 to meet the Landing School class of 2018, along with some of the school’s alumni, at its annual Job Fair.

Marine employers will have direct access to skilled, enthusiastic students who are available for employment in the marine industry starting in May.

Graduates from all the school’s programs — wooden boatbuilding, yacht design, marine systems, and composite materials — will be available to meet potential employers.

There will be time allocated for companies to present a short overview of their organizations to all attendees, as well as for one-on-one job interviews.

Any trade-related business is welcome to attend the Landing School Job Fair for a $100 registration fee.

Space is limited; the Landing School asks companies to confirm attendance by April 6 by downloading and completing the registration form and returning it.

Employers who are unable to attend but would like to have a presence at the Job Fair should send company literature and open-job descriptions by April 6.
